    Monument Valley by Moonlight with the Fuji XT-1

    I just came back to Dallas from spending a week in the Desert Southwest. One of the locations I visited was Monument Valley. The photo below was taken with the Fuji X-T1 using the 18-55mm around 5am in the morning from the deck of The View Hotel. The moon did not rise until early in the morning and the cloud cover presented a problem.. so I waited and waited.

    I just got back home from a 9 hour drive from Alamogordo, NM and wanted to take a shot at doing a quick post on this shot. I'm sure a better image would result from more careful post work but that will have to wait for a complete review of all the over 1,000 photos taken during this quick trip to the Desert Southwest.

    This shot was taken with only the light of the moon for illumination. Cloud cover was pretty bad but occasional clear patches allowed the moonlight to wash over the area.

    45 second exposure at ISO 1250 - Fuji XT-1 18-55mm kit lens. This is a JPG. I still have not found a RAW developer I like.




    I can't believe I misspelled Monument... will have to fix that later... it was late, I was tired and in a hurry.... Haste makes waste.

    Chaco Canyon - Waiting for the moon to rise. XT1

    Here's one more from my week in the Desert Southwest. This one was taken in Chaco Canyon with the Fuji X-T1. This was five frames with the 18-55mm. Each frame was 25 seconds f/4 at ISO 6400. Post in Photoshop CS6. The EVF worked great for this shot. I set the focus to infinity and then slightly rotated the camera on the tripod for each shot, making sure there would be enough overlay to stitch them together.

    I don't care what anyone says about that little 18-55mm lens. It's a versatile little guy.

    Jim,

    absolutely stunning shots! And YES, the 18-55 is a lovely lens, I prefer it even over the excellent Olympus 12-40 on my EM1.

    I found that LR5 gives decent IQ from RAW, although it can be much better if using Irident Developer - which I don't like because it does not fit in my workflow.

    BTW I ordered the XT1 this week and will get it early May - have returned my very much loved XE2 for it ..... but when I see the results from XT1 and knowing about it's stellar EVF I am very confident this will become my most used camera.

    Best

    Peter

    Thanks Peter... both of those were very quick edits after a full day of driving to get back to Dallas... I am going to redo them (and fix spelling).

    I could have taken that trip with just the camera and the 18-55. I never changed lenses once. It was the right lens for the trip. Do I wish it were a little faster, yes.. but for now, it is my most used lens.

    Trying to emulate Ansel with the X-T1

    The photography gods were not smiling upon me while I was at Monument Valley. It was a bit overcast and sometimes downright cloudy. I decided to try my hand at a bit of "What Ansel Saw". Monument Valley begs for color but I have always been a fan of B&W so today I finally had a bit of time to work on one of the shots I took there. I'm certainly no Ansel Adams but I wanted to try and emulate some of his work.... so here is my first feeble attempt.

    This was shot with the Fuji X-T1 and the 18-55mm kit lens. Post in Lightroom and final tweaks in Photoshop CS6.. This was shot JPG.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I tried out the pano mode of the X-T1 while visiting Chaco Canyon. I was surprised how well it turned out. The photo below is web-sized. Here is a link to the full size photo.
    (Warning: full size image is quite large..something to consider if you are on a slow Internet connection.)

    This was shot with the X-T1 and the 18-55mm. Wish there had been more clouds and less jet contrails.

    Interesting. I haven't tried it yet. I assume this was handheld?

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Here's a trick to better aspected panoramas: Set the pano direction to up and then turn the camera to the portrait orientation and swing from left-to-right. Gets you something like this:

    Sorting through my archive for pics to put on my new blog I found this fun shot from 2013.. My 1950s razor, gold plated and I use it every day, so much nicer than those modern plastic multiblade gizmos X100 @ f2.8 iso 800 (still a great camera!)

    Fuji X-T1 at ISO 25600 in Chaco Canyon at night

    While waiting for the moon to rise in Chaco Canyon I decided to play with the X-T1 and went to ISO 25,600 to see what the results might be. Here is the shot and much better than I thought it would be.

    Post in Lightroom & Photoshop CS6. By the way, that streak in the upper right section, at 1 o'clock, was a very faint meteor that entered the frame just before the shutter closed. Wish it had burned brighter.

    Fuji X-T1 25 18-55mm 20 second exposure at f/4 ISO 25600



    Also, I was finally able to rework the Monument Valley shot I took by moonlight around 3 or 4am in the morning. The clouds just would not go away but for a very brief period of time the moon cast some light into the area and this was the result. Again, using the 18-55mm at ISO 1250.

    Just come back from a week on the Northumberland coast, as you can see it was a bit murky! (most of the week was like this then it rained). A few random shots, X-Pro1 and mainly the 35mm 1.4 lens. this is Lindisfarne Castle in the mist (honest)....
